The Umbria region

Holidaymakers seeking culture will delight in Casa delle Rose's unbeatable location in the centre of Umbria - "The green heart of Italy' - a region of stunning beauty dotted with medieval walled towns steeped in history.


Umbria's capital and famous university town Perugia is 30 minutes away, splendid Todi only 20 and St Francis' Assisi about 40. There are many small towns worth a day trip: Montefalco, Bevagna, Spello or the gourmet mecca of Norcia, to name but a few. Between the months of May and October, Umbria is brimming with local festivals. Highlights are Spoleto's world-renowned celebration of the arts "Festival dei Due Mondi", Perugia's mouth-watering chocolate festival in honour of the "Bacio" and Gubbio's spectacular Candle Race.The quiet country lanes around the house are perfect for walking and mountain biking to work up an appetite for lunch at a colourful local trattoria and Alvaro, a friend of the owners who manages a large country estate nearby, can arrange for horse-riding, truffle-hunting (in season), Italian cookery classes, fishing, tennis and archery. There are two excellent restaurants within walking distance of the house.
